About 828 meters tall and with 162 floors, Burj Khalifa is one of Dubai's landmarks. There is an observation deck on the 124th floor that visitors can reach by the elevator in one minute. The entire Dubai can be overlooked through the glass walls of the 124th floor observation deck, including the Palm Jumeirah, Burj Al Arab Hotel, and Dubai's beautiful beaches. Sunset is a good time to make the trip up the tower to look at the views. You can see the day turning into night on the horizon, the sun setting in the west, and the city lights being switched on.
